Starting at 6pm central on 11/25, Pokemon Sun and Moon starter and trainer names can be claimed. Donate $100 to our buildOn fundriaser and leave the name that you would like in the donation comments. You can donate and comment at the following link: https://twitch.streamlabs.com/TheSpeedGamers . The  Pokemon marathon will start on Dec 16 and can be viewed from twitch.tv/thespeedgamers .

We will tweet from @thespeedgamers as the trainers and Pokemon get claimed as well as mark at their names from the list below. It’s important to note that your starter nickname will persist throughout the entire evolution chain.  For example if you nickname Rowlet “Legolas”, Dartrit and Decidueye will also be named “Legolas”.  As we ask each year, please refrain from any crude nicknames or political statements.

Zelda Marathon Details (June 24-July 1) “Hyrule vs Lorule”

Team Rosters and Schedule (subject to change):  http://bit.ly/1WKJ0gK

Rules recap:  Attendees have been divided into two teams, Hyrule and Lorule. There are 14 games being played by each team.  For each run, a player starts with 5 points. Each death results in a loss of one point. If a runner beats their goal time, they will receive a bonus point. During races, the winning runner will get 3 points for their team.  At the end of the marathon, the team with the most points will be awarded the Tri-Hard Championship.

Daily points up for grabs!: There will be around 3 points per day that the chat/community will have an impact on which team gets the points. We will be running promotional contests, fan art, auctions and more to decide which teams are worthy of the points.

Buy items at the Curiosity Shop to help your team!:  When donating you will be able to purchase items from the Curiosity Shop that will impact the player.  For example, by putting “arrows” in a donation comment $30 or higher will result in an automated nerf gun firing arrows at the player. We have several other items rigged up to an Arduino board that will trigger from keywords  in donation comments. A list of items and their prices will be available during the marathon.

And more: Prizes, shirts and more will be detailed in the coming weeks.
